Coric rallies to beat Wawrinka in Shanghai

Nick Kyrgios's effort is under the microscope again after an umpire suggested a point during his first-round Shanghai Masters defeat was "really borderline". "There's a way of playing tennis on a tennis court", he said.

The American qualifier Bradley Klahn battled with the Australian to clinch a 4-6 6-4 6-3 in the Opening Round.

Three games later, Kyrgios smashed an ace and turned to Dumusois to ask "was that borderline poor?" before the French official told him "that's enough".

"It's interesting when you watch him, the umpires are watching him more closely than generally they watch the other end", Woodbridge told reporters at an event for next year's Australian Open.

"It hasn't been the year he'd like and I think next year it's about a focus on slams and actually performing and going deep in those", he said.

Coric did not have to face a single break point across the whole match as his ruthless serving and an uncharacteristically sloppy display from Federer, who had 24 unforced errors, made the difference.

He lost to Matthew Ebden 3-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios has found himself in hot water yet again, following a freaky outburst at the Shanghai Rolex Masters. for the fourth year in a row.

As Klahn accepted the plaudits from the crowd, Kyrgios left the court using his mobile phone.

He was later fined $10,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct.

In 2016, he was booed by the crowd after patting the ball over the net several times during his serves and then walking back to his chair before opponent Mischa Zverev's serve had landed.

Last month, umpire Mohamed Lahyani was suspended from his next two scheduled tournaments after trying to encourage Kyrgios during a match at the US Open.

With his low ranking it will take a major turnaround for Kyrgios to pick up a seeding for the Australian Open in January.

Another American, Frances Tiafoe, was less fortunate.
